Cinco de Mayo Salsa! Dos Ways!

Hola Amigas!

Where do I even begin? The past two weeks have been more difficult on my mental health, and then making videos and blogs on top of everything. Well it became too much so I got behind on editing and videos, and then pretty much nothing went right while filming so I am sorry for the lateness and the different format!

While this video was a pain to make the end result is soo worth it! Believe me I was snacking on it yesterday, and got sooooooo high! And it lasted because I just kept eating, which might also be why this is out late…..

I actually really enjoyed this format so who knows I might keep this video format for a while, what do you think?

On to la receta!!

This salsa is quick and easy, and low on mess! Let’s be honest, nobody wants to actually cook during quarantine and Stay-At-Home Orders. Plus it comes together with very little work on your part, what more can us stoners want?!

Salsa Verde :

1lb of tomatillos

2 jalepenos (I deseed both of mine, and the result was mild)

3 cloves of garlic

1 medium white onion

3 tbs CannaOil – https://sativazebra.com/2020/04/06/crazy-easy-infused-butter/

1/2 bunch of cilantro

Juice of 1 Lime

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp paprika

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Take your tomatillos, jalepenos, garlic, and onion and roast them. I used my broiler, but you can grill them, place on a cast iron, or on the stove. We just want to get them roasted and I like some of that burnt ends flavor.

Once roasted, let them cool for a couple minutes. Then add those into a blender along with the CannaOil, Lime Juice, Cilantro, Cumin, Paprika, Salt, and Paper.

Then Blend it up!! Once blended you can serve or let cool and serve!

Salsa Rojo!

1lb of tomatoes

2 jalepenos (I deseed both of mine, and the result was mild)

3 cloves of garlic

1 medium red onion

3 tbs CannaOil – https://sativazebra.com/2020/04/06/crazy-easy-infused-butter/

1/2 bunch of cilantro

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp paprika

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Follow the same recipes as the salsa verde. I roasted all of my ingredients at the same time, and then separated the ingredients as I blended the salsa.

Once roasted, let the items cool for a couple minutes. Then add those into a blender along with the CannaOil, Cilantro, Cumin, Paprika, Salt, and Paper.

Then Blend it up!! Once blended you can serve or let cool and serve!

What did I tell you? Easy, Delicious, and Little Dishes; that’s my kind of recipe!

Take these salsa and get lit during Taco Tuesday! That’s how I am spending my Cinco de Mayo, what about you?

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy out there. I love you and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

Infundido Pastillas! Haz tu propia pastillas infundido con cannabis! Munchie Lunes!

Hola Amigas!

Este semana hice pastillas de cannabis. Tengo una garganta sensible asi que siempre uso pastillas para la tos, especialmente después de un dab de cannabis. Ahora, estas pastillas subume y ayuda a mi garganta.

Esta receta es fácil, pero deberas estar preparado. Necesitará un palo de CannaMantequilla, 1 taza de CannaAgave (o infundido miel or miel de maple), 2 cucharadas agua, 1/2 cucharadita de vinagre blanco, y 2 cucharadas de jugo de limón fresco.

También necesitarás una olla pequeña, termómetro de caramelo, espátula, y una sartén forrada en papel pergamino. Obtén todas tus herramientas e ingredientes antes de que empieces.

Colocar mantequilla de cannabis en la olla para derretir. Agrega el agave y mezcla con la mantequilla. Suba el fuego a alto y continúe mezclando. Agregue el vinagre y el agua mientras se mezcla.

A mezcla necesita alcanzar 250F antes de aumentar el calor a 300F. Aumente el calor según sea necesario, revolviendo continuamente.

Una vez que la mezcla es 250F, aumente a alto.

Precaución! Agregar el jugo de limón hará que la mezcla chisporrotee. Agregue cuidadosamente el jugo de limón, leep revolviendo ya que esto disminuirá el chisporroteo. Mantenga la mezcla a fuego alto durante un minuto.

Después uno minuto, apaga el fuego, vierta la mezcla en un plato con pergamino. Coloque en la nevera para dejar enfriar durante 15 minutos, la mezcla se endurecerá.

Después 15 minutos, cortar en porciones con cuchillo. Corté el mío más pequeño de lo necesario, por lo que los míos fueron aproximadamente 8 mg.

Una vez cortado, tíralo a un frasco. Mantengo el mío en la nevera, para que no quede pegajoso.

Eso es!! Tiene pastillas caseras si está enfermo o después de un dab!

Pretty easy right?! What would you guys like to see me make?

Bastante fácil, verdad?!? Qué recetas te gustaría leer?

Crazy Easy Infused Butter

Welcome back to another Munchie Monday’s in my Kush Kitchen!

Guys, I used to hate making infused butter aka cannabutter. It was a long and smelly process but it’s necessary for any Kush Kitchen.

After some research and experimentation, I have found the best way to make you own cannabutter!

I am obsessed with my Instant Pot, like my immersion blender, it’s well loved and has become a staple in my kitchen. I’m sure any other pressure cooker would work just as well, but you may need to tweak the time or settings.

I knew I needed to make 2 sticks of cannabutter, with one stick containing 100mg of extract

200mg (mg I want in butter) / .7125 (Potency) = 280.701mg

280.701mg * 1000 = .281 g of wax needed. Further rounded to .28g of wax.

*** I used more cannabis CO2 oil in mine because future recipes require it. The butter amount remains the same.

Place your concentrate into a glass dish or canning jar. The instant pot comes with a wire rack for steaming, or use a different way elevate the dish. Place dish and fill the pot with water. The water level should rise midway up the container.

Close your pressure cooker and seal. Set to high pressure for 7 minutes, turn off warming feature.

When the instant pot finishes decarbing our concentrate, do an instant realize. You can cover the steam spout with a towel.

Place softened butter into your container. It will begin to melt and mix into our oil. Place the lid on with the valve set to seal. Place on high pressure for 15 minutes.

Once again do an instant release of pressure. Mix the butter to ensure even dispersion. Remove from instant pot, and blend for about 5 minutes while bowl cools down.

Place in fridge and let cool for 1-2 hours.

That’s it! Literally!

You can use this butter in cookies, brownies, to flavor your veggies! Use in a ‘baked’ potato, or mix with cinnamon for a cinnamon butter to pair with toast or biscuits.

Don’t use this to sear or fry food as that will cause the THC to degrade. This butter is meant to add flavor and should not be used if the temperature will go over 350F

How are you gonna use this recipe? What infused recipes would you like to see?

Munchie Mondays – Infused Agave Recipe!

Hola Amigas!

Kush Kitchn’s first recipe! Infused Agave, vegan friendly, and with pro tips!

I am sooo excited for this post because it is paired with my first Youtube video for the Kush Kitchn, and begins our Munchie Mondays series. Let’s get to the blog part of this post!

I have been using THC and CBD to treat my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome for years preferring to make my own edibles; however I hated the traditional process of infusing an oil with flower because it smelled and I never knew what my the dosing was. Since I use this primarily for the health benefits, I needed to know how many milligrams per serving.

Well heres a tip from the industry: your favorite edibles are made with a cannabis oil with CO2 oil being a favorite amongst industry professionals.

Therefore when I make my edibles, I buy some form of concentrate from THCa crystals, CBD crystals, wax, or distillate. I then melt that down, using a makeshift double boiler, and then add my other ingredients.

It really is that easy, and with this method you will have a new understanding of how companies can offer affordable edibles while still making money. Cuz you aren’t using that much of the product!

Dosing 101:

When you purchase your concentrate, it will usually state a total cannabinoid potency and a total THC (or CBD) potency. Which potency total you use it up to your personal preference. If you don’t care for the psychoactive elements, then use the total cannabinoid potency; this maximizes product usage and total cannabinoid benefits. For those who want that high, use the Total THC potency. I know there are some readers who only use CBD concentrate products so in that instance you would use the Total CBD potency.

Now that we have out total THC content, which is 71.25% for my wax. You then need to understand the dosing. I wanted every tablespoon of agave to have 10mg of THC since most recipes I use call for one or two tablespoons of a sweetener. A quick google told me that there are 32 tablespoons in a cup, so I would need 10mg per 32 servings of agave.

infused agave, vegan friendly, plant based, infused recipes, mmj, edibles, cannabis edibles, colorado

Desired Potency(10mg) x Potency(.7125) = 14.035mg actual

Actual(14.035) x Servings(32) = 449.1228mg

449.128mg x 1000 = .449g ~ .45g of concentrate

So knowing I need about 45% of my wax, I was able to estimate the wax needed. You can also purchase digital scales fairly cheaply but mine is either broken or needs batteries; which basically means it’s broken.

Now to the recipe!

Take you wax, and place in your double boiler to let it melt down. You can let the wax melt first and then add a cup of agave, or place the wax and agave in at the same time and let them warm up together. I wanted my agave to thicken up so I had them warm up together.

The time to melt will depend on they concentrate but mine took about 30 minutes. Once the wax melted, I took my immersion blended and mixed it for about 15 minutes, with the heat turned off but still sitting in the pot.

Once the measuring cup was cooler, I removed it from the pot and placed on my cutting board while I blended for another 15-20 minutes. I think this step is important because letting your mixture cool quicker will keep the wax emulsified.

I then transferred the agave to a glass container, which is crucial to preserve the flavor and because the agave is still warm. I then place the agave into the fridge to let it thicken up more, but you could use it at this point.

Make sure that you place the infused agave into the fridge when not using, this will help it last longer and ensure the effects.

How was that?! Not too bad right! I use this agave in my tea or also to make salad dressings, bbq sauces, and in some skin care recipes! How are you going to use this recipe? What would you like to see next?

Life Updates and News!

Let’s just get into things

I’m unemployed. Still stings to say it but honestly I’m actually pretty thankful about it. I thought it was my dream job, and thought it was gonna give me the freedom to just create. There was way to much change going on without necessary leadership for guidance. It also became obvious that my creative freedom had very defined limits and that it was an uphill battle just to start, so like I said I’m viewing this as an opportunity.

Before I go further, I want to address how lucky I am that things worked out as they did. This privilege is allowing me to switch gears and focus while many out there are just figuring out how to survive and pay their bills. I want anyone who is struggling to know that I am with you and will continue to fight to make things better! You are needed, special, and loved.

Back to the content! I’m switching many focuses so I will be finishing my degree because I’m tired of being in school 🤣

As for the blog, I’m gonna switch things up a little bit. Firstly, I’m gonna be posting so much more! I’m gonna be giving out recipes and tips for integrating cannabis into your day to day life! This site will also become a place to learn about Multigenerational and Sustainable Living!

Be prepared for tips on making edibles, topicals, or other cannabis items. Be ready to learn about living with a ton of people in one house, and cheap and easy DIYs for your house! As always I’m in a state of nervous excited energy, be ready for all the posts!
